MINISTRY UPDATES AT FIRST PRES
With the governor announcing a new executive order on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, effectively removing all county mask mandates and lifting restrictions on businesses, your session has made the following decisions regarding our two Sunday worship services:
For 8:30 worship, you do not need to pre-register for attendance. However, if you have children who need nursery (ages 0-2) or childcare (ages 3-5), please pre-register at the link below.
For 11:00 worship, you will be required to pre-register for attendance and if you have children who need nursery (ages 0-2) or childcare (ages 3-5). In your attendance pre-registration, please indicate if you wish to be seated in a section with others who prefer to wear masks.
Looking for a way to help with this year’s family VBS? We put together a VBS AMAZON WISH LIST of the supplies we need, and you can purchase them directly off our list and have them sent straight to the church! And if you shop through Amazon Smile, you can select First Presbyterian Church in Ocean Springs, MS, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchase to the church at no extra cost to you!

Many people ask: How do I get to know Christ? How do I get to know the will of God? The answer: read the Word! God’s Word is a treasure book for all people. John Piper states, “From Genesis to Revelation, God’s words and God’s deeds reveal God himself for our knowledge and our enjoyment.”
During May, we will be walking through the book of Acts. This one-month self-study will guide us as we read and meditate on God’s word. The book of Acts picks up where the Gospel of Luke leaves off. It is the birth of the church and the spreading of the gospel. It includes stories of the Ascension, Pentecost, Peter, Stephen, and Paul. Luke’s book is a travel adventure of the Apostle Paul and his missionary journeys. It ends with the gospel being taken to Rome.
First Presbyterian Church of Ocean Springs is one of the many places where God’s great work is evident. We’re located in historic Ocean Springs, MS, and you’ll find a welcoming Christ-centered community of every generation when you walk through our doors. Come see why so many call First Pres home.
